                                       UCSB Math Circle is back !!

Meetings in WINTER 2015 will be held  from January 7 to  March 11, on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:00 pm at the Education building
Room 4219 and 1215 at the UCSB campus. (Follow the link to see a map of UCSB and check the schedule for details on what dates  each room will be used.)

Mathematical Circles bring mathematicians and mathematical scientists into direct contact with pre-college students.

The goal is to engage highly-motivated students in a collaborative environment and foster the exploration and discovery of mathematical concepts that are beyond traditional curriculum.

Math circles were originally inspired by the Eastern European problem discussion approach to math education.

The UCSB Math Circle was funded on October, 2009.  This year  only middle school and first year high school  students are eligible to participate.

The program is free. We only request each family to donate snacks for all the participants once a quarter. Donations to support our Math Circle are also welcome. The professors and graduate students leading the seminars will donate their time.

The UCSB Math Circle is generously supported by the Gervitz School of Education at UCSB, Dr. Daryl Cooper, the Santa Barbara GATE program, and professors and graduate students in the  Department of Mathematics at UCSB who donate their time.
